Poets from Merseyside have started to reignite the art of live performance with a series of eight spoken word events around the Wirral Peninsula.


The Wirral Poetry Festival has emerged from its online only status and has been back in the community over the past weeks celebrating the run up to National Poetry Day 2021 on Thursday.


On Sunday West Kirby Arts Centre hosted a green event, 'Heart of Grass', a poetic tribute to the environment and the issues it is facing, with poets Michelle Wright, Barry Woods and Ali Harwood.


Poets read work from a recent green anthology, and audience members were invited to read a poem of their own relating to the planet and global warming.
